However, where most people see drawbacks, I see opportunity. Cafes are the perfect remedy for community building with a minimal user base. There are groups of early adopters, there’s niche appeal, and opportunities for growth outside the traditional heavy hitters.

How I'd Monetize:

Niche Down

Find a group online with die hard members that hangs out in a space where the tech is less than ideal. There's a focus on trading cards and Pokemon on the site. Migrate Pokemon fans to the platform. I'd look at Facebook Groups, Discord Servers, and outdated Forums for more niche ideas.

Social Media as a Service

Whitelable the underlying tech to communities looking for a social presence for their members.


Internet Traffic is measured in display revenue. Without running ads successfully monetizing will be a challenge.


By prioritizing user well-being and reducing the influence of algorithms that can contribute to addiction, could offer a more positive and enriching experience for its users. Additionally, by prioritizing privacy and security, could help users feel more confident in their online interactions and more comfortable sharing. Overall, it is an appealing alternative for users who are seeking a more secure approach to their online presence.
